Glenfir and Paradise Ranch

Post by seewood »

Any on the west side of the lake have a better vantage point? We are south and see smoke rolling around but not the fire itself.
With a high pressure ridge building and the wind then usually increasing, we might have an issue. Lots of unburned fuel above the KVR. Positive is the area is honeycombed with roads for decent to good access.
Currently I'd guestimate the wind down on the lake around 17-22 knots from the north.

Just saw 4 heli's head north( 3 with buckets) and two tankers but don't know the destination.

2 Heli's coming back to the base here as a Slkorsky just headed north. Both came back from the east side of the valley as well as the S61 going up the east side. Not sure what fire they are actioning but it does appear they are on the ones N of Naramata.
Another heli just left as well, appears heading to the Goode fire.
The 2 Convairs based here went out for a run but it looked like they went closer to the west side, near 97C, was not the Eneas or Conkle fire for sure. A convair from Kamloops (44) also did one run but did not return here.
Why use a big word when a diminutive one will suffice.

The property at the very end of Naramata Road. ( about 2 kms past the Chute lake Road turn off.) Now owned by Anthony Von Mandle of Mission Hill wine.
